Spring is in the air …

Popping by to share some sunshine!

I don’t think it’s ever been warm enough in February, for me to sit outside in the sunshine, whilst stitching around the binding of a quilt, but yesterday …

feb-7

It looks so strange to have bare branches overhead rather than the full canopy of greenery, but it was seriously warm.  Shortly after one of the boys snapped this photo, I discarded my slippers and socks and even rolled up my leggins to take full advantage of the warmth – absolute bliss.  It’s one of my all time favourite things to do – sit in the sunshine and stitch around a quilt – simple pleasures!!!

The quilt I’m stitching around is my 4th finish this year with a few other patchwork tops in progress.  This one is for a little girl with a wonderful Welsh name – Cadi Fflur – meaning Pure Flower and she’s arrived in this world just as the flowers burst forth from their winter’s sleep.

Her quilt is from the new Makower range – Ellie – with lots of Spring flowers, little hearts and Ellie the Elephant with her trunk uplifted for good luck!

Another new little chap also received a quilt and matching cushion back in January …

This is a real Down on the Farm quilt with red barns, horses grazing in the pasture, big trucks and tractors.

Today has dawned bright and clear, without a cloud in the sky.  There’ll be no outdoor stitching for me today though as I have a workshop to teach and zipped purses will be on the menu – hot off the sewing machines!

Happy days …
